What is the Missoula County Property Tax?

Proceeds from the Missoula County Personal Property Tax are used locally to fund school districts, public transport, infrastructure, and other municipal government projects. Property tax income is almost always used for local projects and services, and does not go to the federal or state budget.

Unlike other taxes which are restricted to an individual, the Missoula County Property Tax is levied directly on the property. Unpaid property tax can lead to a property tax lien, which remains attached to the property's title and is the responsibility of the current owner of the property. Tax liens are not affected by transferring or selling the property, or even filing for bankruptcy. Property tax delinquency can result in additional fees and interest, which are also attached to the property title.

In cases of extreme property tax delinquency, the Missoula County Tax Board may seize the delinquent property and offer it for sale at a public tax foreclosure auction, often at a price well under market value. Proceeds of the sale first go to pay the property's tax lien, and additional proceeds may be remitted to the original owner.

Missoula County Homestead Exemption

For properties considered the primary residence of the taxpayer, a homestead exemption may exist. The Missoula County Homestead Exemption can reduce the appraised valuation of a primary residence before calculating the property tax owed, resulting in a lower annual property tax rate for owner-occupied homes.

Getting a Homestead Exemption may also help protect your home from being repossessed in the case of a property tax lien due to unpaid Missoula County property taxes or other types of other debt.

In most counties, you must specifically submit a homestead exemption application to your county tax assessor in order to enjoy the tax reduction and other benefits available. To get a copy of the Missoula County Homestead Exemption Application, call the Missoula County Assessor's Office and ask for details on the homestead exemption program. You can also ask about other exemptions that may exist for veterans, seniors, low-income families, or property used for certain purposes such as farmland or open space.

Missoula County Property Tax Deduction

You can usually deduct 100% of your Missoula County property taxes from your taxable income on your Federal Income Tax Return as an itemized deduction. Montana may also let you deduct some or all of your Missoula County property taxes on your Montana income tax return.

Montana property taxes keep rising, but Missoula isn’t at the top

image_print

(Montana Free Press) Just how hard do Montana cities, counties and school districts lean on residential property taxes to fund government services? Figures presented to lawmakers last month indicate the answer varies widely across different parts of the state, ranging from as low as $125 annually per capita in McCone County to as high as $15,794 per capita in Madison County.

The data was presented Jan. 13 by legislative researcher Megan Moore to a group of lawmakers and tax policy experts conducting an ongoing study into whether Montana’s tax system should be modernized to account for economic change.

The figures include value-based property taxes paid by residential property owners to municipalities, counties, and school districts. They exclude non-tax fees and assessments levied by local governments, which are difficult to tabulate across different jurisdictions.

Because high-end vacation homes like Yellowstone Club properties in Madison County can skew average figures, the per capita statistics don’t necessarily give a precise sense of how much typical Montana homeowners are paying. They do, however, indicate how much tax burden falls on property owners at a time when policymakers are pondering revenue reforms like a statewide sales tax.

*****

The tax study, named a top priority for lawmakers in the interim between the 2019 and 2021 legislative sessions, was commissioned in part to explore whether state and local governments rely too heavily on residential property tax revenue.

Residential property tax collections have risen on a per capita basis faster than inflation over the past 16 years in 53 of Montana’s 56 counties, according to a Montana Free Press analysis of the tax study data. On average, Montanans paid $395 per capita in residential taxes in 2002, and $806 in 2018, an increase of more than 100%.

In comparison, inflation has driven U.S. consumer prices up by 40% over the same period, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis says per capita income in Montana has risen 26% in that time.

With Montana one of five U.S. states without a statewide sales tax, property taxes represent a key revenue stream for schools, law enforcement, fire departments, and other local government services. While some property taxes flow into the state general fund, a majority of state-level revenue comes from individual income taxes.

The amount levied in specific cities and counties depends on both the size of local government budgets and the composition of the local tax base. In places with a significant amount of valuable non-residential property — including industrial plants, large shopping centers, and oil pipelines — taxes assessed on that property can carry much of the weight for local government services. In jurisdictions with less non-residential tax base, more of the burden ends up on homeowners.

The total amount spent by local governments is a product of budgeting decisions made by elected county commissioners, town councillors, and school board members, as well as tax proposals approved directly by voters.

Montana state law nominally prevents local governments from ramping up property tax collections faster than one-half the rate of inflation, with an exception for tax collections from new development and voter-approved measures.

However, local governments routinely argue that the cap squeezes their budgets as their expenses rise with inflation, and often circumnavigate it by appealing to voters or adopting fees that aren’t technically classified as property taxes. The city of Bozeman, for example, created a special district to collect fees for street construction in 2015.

Local government leaders, however, increasingly worry that they’re asking property owners for too much, potentially setting themselves up for a tax revolt and ensuing budget turmoil.

“The only option to keep pace with service demands and infrastructure investment requirements is to ask the voters to voluntarily tax themselves for special projects through mill levies and bonded debt,” Montana Association of Counties Executive Director Eric Bryson said via email. “Property tax fatigue in conjunction with the requirement to continue asking voters for voluntary tax increases is an unsustainable system.”

*****

As the tax study moves forward, one concern on policy makers’ minds is the shift toward internet-based retail, which means lost property tax revenue from brick and mortar stores as large retailers like Kmart and Shopko shut down in the face of competition from Amazon. Also part of the discussion is declining natural resource tax base, such as the estimated $4.5 million hit to property tax revenues coming with this year’s closure of Colstrip generating units 1 and 2.

Proponents argue that a sales tax could let Montana municipalities shift some tax burden to out-of-state tourists and allow local governments to relieve pressure on property owners without cutting budgets. But while some Montana resort towns currently collect resort taxes, efforts to float broader sales tax measures at the Montana Legislature have gone over like lead balloons in recent years, criticized by both tax-skeptic conservatives and liberals concerned that sales taxes fall disproportionately on lower-income Montanans.

As such, it isn’t clear whether lawmakers will develop legislation for the 2021 session as a result of the revenue study, particularly with control of the governor’s office depending on the outcome of the 2020 election.

“I’m not sure if we’ll get to a major overhaul this time, but I think we’re going to get a lot of data put together,” said Sen. Mark Blasdel, a Kalispell Republican serving on the study committee, at a Jan. 13 press briefing.

What does that data tell us? For starters, it’s that scenery-economy-heavy counties in Montana’s western mountains tend to lean particularly hard on their residential tax bases.

In Lake County, on the south side of Flathead Lake, for example, 81% of property tax collections came from residential properties in 2018, with residential collections totalling $1,021 per capita.

In contrast, residents of Rosebud County, where the Colstrip generating plant has provided a hefty industrial tax base for decades, pay some of the lowest property taxes in the state. In 2018, only 5.6% of property tax revenues in the county came from residential parcels, an amount totalling just $179 per capita.

In a more typical situation for the north-central and eastern Montana plains, Richland County taxpayers paid $501 per capita on residential properties in 2018. That figure was supplemented by $1,806 per capita of collections from other types of property.

Residents in urban counties typically pay more. In Yellowstone County, around Billings, residential taxpayers paid $711 per capita in 2018. In Gallatin County, around Bozeman, the figure was $1,094 per capita. In Missoula County it was $989.

Madison County is an extreme outlier, having collected $15,974 in residential property taxes per capita in 2018.

Bob Story, executive director of the Montana Taxpayers Association and a study committee member, attributed that figure to high-end properties in the Yellowstone Club.

“They have a lot of property and not many people,” he said.

In the coming months, the study committee plans to dig into other portions of Montana’s tax system, particularly income and natural resource taxes. More information on the committee’s work, including briefing materials, is available at leg.mt.gov/committees/interim/2019rvic/hj-35-study-state-and-local-tax-policy.

Juanita Vero

Commissioner Juanita Vero started her new job in July after Commissioners Dave Strohmaier and Josh Slotnick appointed her to fill the remainder of Nicole Rowley’s term, which runs through the end of 2020. Vero, a fourth-generation partner of the E Bar L Ranch in Greenough, plans to run for the open seat in the November 2020 election.

“Juan,” as she’s known around the office, took a break from her busy schedule to answer a few questions about her experience so far and what she hopes to accomplish in the future.

Why did you want to serve as a commissioner?

I don’t think many folks say, “I want to be a county commissioner.” I’m from a rural part of the county and there’s not always a lot of trust in government. In fact, I can think of numerous times I’ve told people, “Man, there’s no way I’d want to be a county commissioner … they just get chaffed coming and going, trying to serve unsatisfied citizens with limited resources. No one is ever pleased with you.”

The reason I changed my attitude is that I was asked to consider the position by some folks I respect. I had a contemplative birthday weekend in Recluse, Wyoming, and took stock of the years I’d spent serving on various nonprofit boards and committees focused on natural resource, community-based conservation. I have a deep love for Missoula County, its complexities and contradictions, and realized I had the capacity to have a positive impact so I shouldn’t squander it. My high school motto is Not utsibi ministretur sed ut ministret or “Not to be served but to serve.”

What does a typical day look like for you so far?

We take an impressive number of back to back meetings, both standing and scheduled, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., with some evening obligations, such as community events or public meetings. Generally, the day is a whirlwind of staff reports or presentations from various county departments or organizations from across the county, field tours, and, of course, public hearings. I joke that one could get a concussion merely sitting through a day of meetings — one minute we’re discussing paving rollers and pavement recipes, the next it’s early detection of autism for children under 5, a building in this department has boiler or HVAC issues, this riparian corridor should be protected, that building needs a new roof, and oh, there’s illegal camping going on in a right-of-way and what are we to do about folks who are working but forced to live in their cars, and this developer needs a variance on fire code because of new building design, someone vandalized Fort Missoula Historical Museum, this staff member is retiring or promoted and it will take two new hires to do the job, Seeley Lake needs a sewer, and, yes, we need to figure out a budget for 118,000 people living across 2,618 square miles. I usually find myself back in the office in the evening when it’s quiet and I have a chance to process what happened that day and catch up on email.

What do you think are the most pressing issues facing Missoula County?

This isn’t very sexy, but it’s our taxing structure — that we rely so heavily on property taxes to fund all the important and necessary services that make Missoula County a great place to live is problematic. It’s also a blow that revenue from other sources has steadily declined, whether it’s due to state and federal cuts to social services, decreases in PILT money (payment in lieu of taxes we receive for government-owned property in the county) or insufficient reimbursement for housing state inmates at our county jail.

Another challenge is balancing growth while preserving our collective senses of place. Change is hard, and everyone in Missoula County − urban, rural and in the “doughnut” − identify with the ground, the landscape and the people around them in their corner of the county. Adding 20,000 people over the next couple of decades and seeing new things pop up in our old haunts can feel disorienting. County leadership can help set the tone in how we navigate that and how people might feel about it at the end of the day.

What are some of your goals for your first year in office?

I don’t consider myself a politician, and I find it rather presumptuous to roll into a new position, a new culture and start making grand gestures. I’m reminded of a wilderness first responder maxim, “before doing anything, survey the scene.” I had an instructor who recommended taking the time to eat a Snickers bar — and observe what was going on — before administering aid. My goal for the coming year is to eat that Snickers bar, to listen, learn and absorb as much as possible and ultimately create the space or conditions for staff to feel empowered to do their best work and for citizens to feel heard and able to create the community in which they want to live. I’m honored to be part of this commission. We won’t always agree, but I’m very excited to be working alongside Commissioners Strohmaier and Slotnick.

What has surprised you most since starting your new job?

I’ve never worked indoors in an air-conditioned office before. It takes a bit of getting used to. In all seriousness, I wasn’t expecting to fall in love every day with the people (citizens and staff) of Missoula County. Even those who are upset with us impress me with how much they care and are trying to do what’s right for their families and their community. We are incredibly fortunate to live here, and if any place can grapple with sticky issues, Missoula County can.

Montana Property Taxes

Buying a house in Billings? Missoula? Helena? If so, it’s a good idea to get familiar with the Montana property tax system. Montana has relatively low taxes on residential real estate. The state’s average effective property tax rate is 0.83%, well below the U.S. average, which currently stands at 1.07%.

In part, rates in Montana are low because the system is structured to reduce the burden on homeowners. The taxable value for an owner-occupied residential property is only a small percentage of the property’s market value. Commercial and business property also receive big exemptions.

If you are buying a house in Montana, it’s also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the details of getting mortgage in the Big Sky State. You can find this information, along with details about rates on our Montana mortgage guide.

A financial advisor in Montana can help you understand how homeownership fits into your overall financial goals. Financial advisors can also help with investing and financial plans, including taxes, homeownership, retirement and more, to make sure you are preparing for the future.

How Montana Property Taxes Are Calculated

Property taxes in Montana are based on your total tax rate and the taxable value of your home. Taxable value is based on your home’s market value, but the state of Montana calculates it using a somewhat complicated formula.

First, residential property is reappraised by state assessors once every two years. (Reappraisal occurred every six years prior to 2015). The goal of the reappraisal is to match the current market value for each property. If the reappraised value is greater than the previous value, the difference is phased in over the course of the two-year reappraisal cycle. That means there is a slight lag between your current market value and the value on which your taxes are based.

Montana Property Tax Rates

Cities, counties and school districts largely determine tax rates in Montana. The state also collects statewide taxes to support education. Tax rates are expressed in mills or millage rates. A mill equals $1 for every $1,000 of taxable value, while a millage rate is a mill expressed as a decimal. For example, 1 mill is equivalent to a millage rate of 0.001.

For example, the statewide taxes are 95 mills for public schools and another 6 mills for higher education.

While your tax bill will reflect a millage rate, a good way of comparing tax rates from one area to the next is through effective tax rates. This is equal to annual property taxes paid as a percentage of home value. The table below shows average effective property tax rates for every county in Montana, along with their median home values and median annual property tax payments.

Yellowstone County

Yellowstone County is located in central Montana and contains the city of Billings. Tax rates in Yellowstone County are near the state average, as its average effective tax rate is 0.90%. However, it has a moderately high $216,900 median home value, which causes its $1,962 median annual property tax payment to rank as fifth-highest in the state.

Property Tax Information

Appraisal Notices

The Department of Revenue, a division of the State of Montana's government, determines the market value of residential and commercial property once every two years.  The value of your property directly affects the property taxes you pay to schools, Missoula County, and the City of Missoula.  The notices for the 2019-2020 appraisal cycle are mailed in June 2019, with a 30-day protest period.  Learn more about your appraisal notice and protest options from the Montana Department of Revenue.

Property Tax Bill

Local taxing jurisdictions (local schools, Missoula County, and the City of Missoula) set their budgets and send millage rate information to Missoula County, which mails tax bills for all jurisdictions.  The bills are mailed in October and taxes are due at the end of November and the end of May.  View or pay your property taxes on Missoula County's website.  Be certain to click the button to view the pie charts, which illustrates where your taxes are going.  You can also download an Excel spreadsheet to see details about your city taxes.
